Baar Baar Rafi, a fan club dedicated to Mohammed Rafi, had a remarkable Members’ Nite with Karaoke and a 70-minutes documentary on the singer recently, as part of the Members’ Nite programme.

The documentary, produced by Films Division of India, is being screened for the first time in South India and covers the entire lifespan of Rafi. The documentary showed Rafi from his childhood till he breathed his last. For those, who did not have much insight into his life, this documentary answered all their queries.

The karaoke was managed by seven amateur singers, who are members of the club as well, and they made the evening memorable by singing 37 foot-tapping numbers of Rafi. Some of the songs sung included Sukh ke sab sath hi dukh me na koi from the movie Gopi, Pukar tha chala hu main from the movie Mere Sanam, and the Oh haseena zulfo wali from Teesri Manzil and Yamma Yamma from the movie Shaan.  

The Members’ Nite was done in remembrance of the 29th death anniversary of Rafi. The auditorium was full and there were many people trying to get into the auditorium by hook or crook.

Founder of the Club Ashok Dalmia says, “I am a die-hard fan of Rafi. I have been his fan since childhood. My mother also used to listen to his songs when I was in her womb. So I would like to say that I was born and brought up by listening to him. I also used to listen to his songs while studying.”

Mukund Pandurangi, a member of the BBR Club, says, “I simply love Rafi’s songs. I eat, drink and breathe Rafi’s songs. Whenever I am happy or sad I listen to him. His songs are there at home, in my car and on my phone too.” The passion for Rafi is there in each and every member of this club. In a short while the club has grown to great heights, the members are from all  walks of life.
